This means I've shifted into a different mode of operation. I told the doctors that my priorities are unequivocally to maximize the amount of energy I have, to be able to write, and enjoy my family in these last days. But I do plan to write if I have the energy to do so. I'm happy to have visitors. But I can't plan and coordinate them. So I'm telling people to just come by for a short visit, even if there's overlaps with other people. I suppose the one nice thing about this dreadful news is that I can drop the food restrictions that are concerned with food borne illnesses. We're thus having a sushi banquet tonight. If my taste buds don't cooperate, I'll kill them!
Looking forward, I will continue the blog, but it will be a bit more intermittent, since I have other writing priorities that are more important. In particular, the letter to my grandchildren. If any significant change in my condition occurs, of course I will do a blog post on that.
